FDA investigating after nails found inside candy in Tennessee

The FDA has launched an investigation to determine who is tampering with candy at a Perry County convenience store.

Last November, three people reported finding nails inside Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups at Fat Man’s in Perry County.

Now, investigators said they have found a nail inside a Baby Ruth candy bar.

Perry County Chief Deputy Nick Weems purchased a Reese’s cup while Channel 4’s cameras were rolling. He too found a nail inside the candy.

Someone came forward last October after they bit into a Baby Ruth bar purchased at the same store and found a small nail inside.

“I do think it’s legit,” Weems said.

The FDA has ruled out all employees at the convenience store. Owner Gary Patel allowed deputies to come in and open all of the store’s candy. All employees have also passed multiple polygraph tests.

No one has been injured by the nails. Everyone has managed to spit out the nail before accidentally swallowing it. All four victims were adults.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact police.
